College Decision Video Instructions
Step 1: Set the Scene
Find a quiet, well-lit area in your home. Get your college t-shirt and any other props you might have ready to go and plan what you’re going to say and do! Maybe consider involving your family to cheer you on, have a chant ready for your college, etc. The sky is the limit! There’s a prize for the most spirited video, so bring your creativity and excitement!
Step 2: Make the Announcement
Ask a family member to help with filming, or find a spot to set your phone to film and make the big announcement! Make sure your voice and college choice can be clearly heard and seen on screen!
Make sure to announce the following as clearly as possible: “My name is _________ and I’ll be attending __________ in the fall.”
Step 3: Send it in
Send your video in to us using the form located here.
We encourage you to share your Suited for Success kit unboxing photos on Instagram! Make sure to tag @drd4s, and use the hashtag #DRDFSDecisionDay and #IDecided.
